app. >>> right now the obama administration scrambling to work around what would allow insurance companies to get paid come january 1st. some are calling this fix actually a bailout by guestmation. jamie weinstein here to explore how something could turn ugly very, very fast. what's going on here, jamie? >> well, this is the latest of the parade of horribles from the obama care rollout. government is never very efficient, but this is like a third world despotism. we're told they fixed the front end of the obama care website. they haven't even built the backen yet, which is the part -- back end yet, which is the part where you pay insurance companies the premium you get. the government is telling insurance companies that we pay you, just guesstimate how much we owe in terms of subsidies for those who are eligible for subsidies, and we'll give that to you. then we'll settle the deal sometime down the road whether we paid you too little or too much. but as you can imagine, neil, i very -- it's unlikely that insurance companies are going to say that they were owed less than they are.
